The teenage health freak corpus comprises messages sent via the 'Ask Doctor Ann' facility on the teenage health freak website. This facility enables users to submit their health questions anonymously to the online GP persona, Doctor Ann. At the time the message is submitted the user has the option to specify their gender and their age both of which involve selecting a value from a drop-down list. It is not compulsory for users to provide this information and therefore messages can also be submitted with no age or gender specified. Below is a detailed overview of the corpus based on the year the message was sent and the age and gender of the sender.
